You’re probably connecting via svn+ssh://, and the message you see is
not from your local svn binary, but from the binary at the server. You
can get this message if the locale at the server is not correctly
specified. Have you checked the ~/.bashrc on the server to see if it
sets the locale to something which isn’t available there?
